Meet Heather

I can't imagine ever not working with children. Watching and being a part of a young child's growth and development is amazing! I have been working with children since I was a child myself. I went to college while working full-time for a degree in Early Childhood education, and earned my Montessori certification in 2016. My professional experience includes a year as a nanny for a 7-year-old girl, 15+ years in preschools with infants/toddlers/preschoolers/school age children. Also, 9 years working in a church nursery, plus various babysitting jobs. I am currently working Sunday mornings at the church plus part time M - F at a Montessori preschool. Personally, I am a mother of a 14yr old girl and I need to find a position to supplement my income. I am comfortable and experienced with all age groups and large group sizes. I am first aid & CPR certified, have years Read more of working with pets, house-sitting, house cleaning, and don't mind hard work. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
